How to: Stall On Wave to Get More Barrel Time On a Slyde Handboard

Stalling on a wave with your Slyde Handboard can give you more barrel time & enhance your bodysurfing experience in general.

Stalling is the second thing that goes hand in hand with getting barreled. When I say stalling, that means that I'm using my free hand to create drag or to create uplift to give me more or less speed as I need it.

If I drop into a wave and I'm really deep, I feel like I'm not gonna make it, I'm gonna pick my arm up and put it on top of my other hand and I'm gonna push forward, I'm gonna drive, I'm gonna try to create speed, I'm gonna kick really hard.

On the flip side, if I drop in and the wave doesn't look like it's gonna barrel very long, you can bottom turn of sorts and then dig your arm into the wave, allowing the wave to catch up and pitch over your body.
